Where does your company stand with RFID technology?

THE TALK...

RFID tags—the labels that automate product tracking, helping Wal-Mart and other big retailers keep costs low—have dropped in cost from about $1 each to close to a dime, according to a label supplier who spoke at the recent Fenetech Users Conference. Related scanning equipment costs have come down too.

As a result, this technology could start playing a larger role in the window and door industry. I know there’s been interest out there in RFID, but for the first time, I'm hearing manufacturers say they can justify a system for their shipping operations, and these were not huge
manufacturers.

But what do you think? Is there a place for RFID in your operation? Vote in our poll, and, of course, if you have comments on the topic, I’d love to hear them. Has anyone tried RFID?
Email me and let me know how your company’s used it and how it’s worked.
